Forgot to mention, it's likely that some internal opcodes changed due to a massive code refactoring (nothing cool for the user, but the build system now automatically extracts the commands from the libraries).
This may (possibly) make binary programs incompatible with the previous version. If you see crashes or strange behavior when running your programs after upgrading this is likely the cause. You need to do a reset with full memory wipe (On-A-F then press all 3 shifts at once, while you press the "Clear Mem" soft key).

To avoid wiping the memory, you could instead save the source code of any programs by converting to a string before flashing the new rom. After the upgrade, you can recompile them back.

EDIT: I changed the key sequence to On-A-F, used to say On-A-C but that was incorrect.
